It’s the fourth year that the East Hampton Historical Society has mounted a family-oriented exhibit, “A Children’s World,” which features antique toys from the 1790s to the 1960s, but Richard Barons, the executive director of the society, seems as excited about the items on display as if it were the first time.
The exhibit, which runs through the end of the year, “seemed logical when we started out — to do something for the whole family that’s free at this time of year,” Mr. Barons said.
“Beautiful Tree, Severed Roots,” the cinematic journey Kenny Mann will offer viewers on Sunday at the Bay Street Theatre, is not strictly a memoir, although it is about her past. “It’s a story of identity,” she said, adding that others will be able to relate to the documentary. “So many people today are misplaced, it’s very relevant in today’s political climate.”
While people fret over pesticides and other nefarious additives in our food supply, who will be the watchdog for the four-legged crowd?
Betsy Petroski Smith has stepped up to the plate — or the dog bowl — with a line of completely natural dog toys and biscuits under the name dogOdog, with all the ingredients, from packaging to product, 100 percent certified organic and made in the United States. Ms. Petroski puts the packages together herself in East Hampton.
